    Has anyone ever tried Cibu?

    I've been wanting to try out some Cibu products lately, but they're so expensive and I don't want to waste my money on something that I can't try first! I guess Cibu is an east coast thing since none of the retailers carry it anywhere near where I live. I'm interested in more than half of their...

    Has anyone tried their pigments? I absolutely LOVE them!! They're super cheap too! They're only $1.85 for a FULL 5 gram jar. Their website is, but they also have an ebay store (and the shipping is WAAAAY cheaper). I bought a 20 pack from their ebay store and I'm so...

    nude lippies for nc30?

    they don't have to specifically be mac lippies. I have fleshpot, but it's on the borderline of washing me out even when I put lipgloss over it. I also don't mind if it's a sheer nude color. I'm usually just worried about the creamier ones because I don't know how dark or light they will be on my...

    I cut my credit card in half

    I FINALLY did it! I cut my credit card in half!!!!! No need for the stores to do it for me. LOL. I went crazy shopping for the Neo Sci-Fi collection and when I got home, I looked at my credit card and sporadically snipped it in half. If I don't have it, then I can't spend anymore money that I...

    239 brush not picking up color anymore?

    I tried searching for a topic like this, but I couldn't find one. I just bought my 239 brush probably like a month ago and the other day I was using it and noticed that it doesn't pick up as much eye shadow color anymore. The brush just doesn't pick up the shadows on the tips-mid bristles. It's...

    My eyeshadow makes my eyes look half closed

    For some reason, when I put on a lot of eyeshadow (mainly any dark/semi-dark colors) my eyes look like they're half closed... or like I have sleepy eyes or something. I try using eyeliner to make them look bigger, but it doesn't help that much. Do you guys have any suggestions on how to make my...

    Light flush or warmed MSF?

    I'm an NC30 and I've heard others that have the same skin tone as me use both. I'm not too sure how they'd look on me since I've never tried them in person before... I want to order one off the MAC website, but I didn't want to order both and have to return one later on... Could someone please...

    Do you prefer mac eyeshadows or pigments?

    I've been debating for a long time about which one I like better. When I first got into MAC, I loved the idea of pigments, but I own a few samples that just sit around and I find myself using the shadows on a regular basis. I love pigments, but I think since they're loose, I don't reach for them...

    Empty screw jars for pigments?

    I'm not sure if this is the right spot for this, but I couldn't find anywhere better. Where do you guys get your empty screw top jars for pigment samples? I haven't a clue where to get mine. I know offers them for 25 cents a jar. Is there anywhere cheaper? Thanks!
